Each year in New Zealand's best artists are recognised by the Arts Foundation and rewarded for their talents, achievements and efforts. Waititi and Catton are recipients of the Laureate Award, with a cash award of $50,000, while Goebel receives the New Generation Award of $25,000. It's like you go off into the world with your art and here's a little helping hand, a little shove says Waititi. Catton received the New Generation Award in 2012 which she says was the reason she could write The Luminaries. I was living on the smell of an oily rag. It allowed me to survive a whole year without having to get a job, says the writer. I think that this is very cool because she is getting all of this money that she has revised by all of these people.

There was this big earthquake down in Wellington early this morning and  two people have died from it. It was a massive 7.6-magnitude earthquake. Our Prime Minister John Key says...
 "On the best information we have there's been two fatalities. At this point we're unable to give you precise information on what caused those fatalities.  We think it's only likely to be two - there are isolated parts of the country that we don't have perfect eyes on so we can't be 100 per cent sure."

The best part of the movie was when she was a baby and she went towards the sea and it moved away, then came back and they became friends. What made me feel like I was going to cry was when the song of the movie came on while she was playing in the water. I didn’t really think that I would end up crying when this part of the movie came on. I think that this was a good experience for me.

Sea lion pup shot dead near Dunedin

A critically threatened sea lion pup was found shot dead on the Otago Peninsula on Saturday.Staff from the Department of Conservation (DOC) found the remains of the 11 month-old female sea lion named Rua on a beach near Dunedin. Rua was last seen on Allans Beach in September and made the headlines last summer when her birth was overseen by the local community. DOC Coastal Otago operations manager Annie Wallace says the female was only one of 11 born last summer. The brutal senseless shooting of a defenseless threatened native animal is a tragedy. Rua was one of only 11 sea lion pups born on the peninsula last summer, she says. The impact of her death on the recovery of the New Zealand sea lion is not to be underestimated.

What I Think About This And Why
I think that who ever did this they should have not done this to this poor little baby Sea lion pup . I am very disgusted by whoever did it and I want to know why they world do this I mean what did the little pup do to make this person do this. I am just mad about this because I relay like animals because I grew up with animals.

Ireland Beats All Blacks

The All Blacks have been beaten by Ireland 40-29 in Chicago. The result ends New Zealand’s record breaking winning run of 18 tests victories in a row. The result is the first time Ireland has ever beaten the All Blacks in their 28 attempts. Ireland led 25-8 at halftime and while New Zealand rallied in the second half to get back within four points Ireland, were too strong. The All Blacks captain Kieran Read said he didn’t think the side “turned up with the right attitude. We talked about it all week but when you come into a test match you’ve got to turn up with the right attitude and be physical…they came out and really took it to us and we took our time to react to that and you can’t leave it till the last 20 minutes every week to react.

Three people were injured by fireworks – two of them seriously. Firefighters responded to more than twice the number of fireworks call-outs than last year in what they say was a very disappointing night. Guy Fawkes occurs on the 5th November each year. Fireworks are only allowed to be purchased by those over  18 and stores can only sell them for four days.

Meow-Bourne Cup winner lured by cheeseburger

A radio segment by More FM's Lana and Jose dubbed the 'Meow-Borne Cup' had four cats lined up in a race that attracted plenty of attention. The entrants - Ellie, Muffle Belinda Sealer, Leo DE-Cat-Prion, and Oscar Puss-victorious - took to the starting blocks ahead of the race, but the sprint itself proved a little more challenging.Leo DE-Cat-Prion - labelled "second favorite" by More FM ahead of the contest - was enticed by a Burger King cheeseburger held by its owner at the finish line to claim the win. The first-placed puss took away packs of cat treats and a bottle of sauvignon blanc for its efforts, alongside a coveted gold cup and the inaugural title of Meow-Borne cup champion.
